Almost There.

The diet cleanse is going well.

I have been mostly faithful.  There were a couple of times when I just could not finish one more bite of my salads -- day three and day six.  I like salad, but to bulk them up I was adding lots of raw vegetables -- broccoli stems, cauliflower, sweet potato, carrots, asparagus, red cabbage, and/or radishes.  All raw.  All things I actually like.  But honestly last night I was just too tired to chew that much.  I lightly steamed some broccoli and drizzled it with some sesame oil and thought I was in heaven

I had spent the day weeding and mulching in my yard. I should have waited for today. It is cooler.  It's done for a while though.

I also installed a new shade in the TV room.  There was a cheap vinyl venetian blind that just fell apart the other night.  Amazing the tiny little pieces of plastic that made up what was supposed to hold the slats to the top bar.  I bought a honey comb shade.  Of course I had to use new mounts but the drilled holes still worked.  How often does that happen.  I did have to use a screwdriver, my least favorite tool.

Why physics refers to "simple tools" is far from my comprehension.. I'm not really all that unintelligent but I have an appalling lack of any kind of intuitive sense for the rules of physics.

My gentleman friend from Vermont is going to come for a visit.  Would it be taking advantage to have a list of the little things that need attention around here?

Pollen season has started here.  My car windshield was green.  Otherwise the weather has been beautiful for those of us who like warm and sunny.


  1. Yep, sometimes you just need "cooked".
    I think a little "honey do" list might be just fine, make him feel needed and at home.

  2. Sounds like you're doing well on your diet. I don't think a occasional 'cooked' item would hurt.

  3. OH a honey-do list would make him feel important. Men like to feel needed.

    Good job on the cleanse. Man all that salad would have me never being able to leave the house.Okay, that was TMI.

  4. Good job on the cleanse. A list is most appropriate.

  5. A little help from a friend never hurts! Happy chopping.

  6. I say have a list. The bigger the better. Gives him something to do while he's there and helps you out at the same time. What are friends for? Right.

  7. Yeah, give him a Honey Do list. Men love to do things for the woman in their lives.


I appreciate readers' comments so much. You don't even always have to agree with me.
